National Competition 14/15th August 2021

What a busy weekend that was! 50 competitors from 13 clubs up and down the country. ECSC had 10 members competing and they did very well as you will see below. The weather was very variable with a lot of heavy rain on Saturday with showers on Sunday. Overall the scores were high with many personal bests being shot helped by the slack winds on the Saturday when many of the prone details were busy. We added extra firing points for Bench Rest and Pistol on both days hence we were able to get a good throughput and prevent long waits to get on a detail which had not been pre-booked.

Medals went to some older members and some newer ones. Asa won 3 Gold medals between Sporting Rifle and Field Sporting Rifle, and a Bronze in Bench Rest Light Varmint. Anthony F. won a Silver medal in Bench Rest Semi Auto and a Silver in Field Sporter prone 100. Sean McE won a Silver in Open Small Bore Pistol T & P 1, a Silver in FSPR50 and a Bronze in Open Small bore Pistol Multi Target. Bryan P. won a Silver in FSPR50 and a Bronze in  FSPR 100. One of our newest members Rex C. won a Silver in his first ever  competition entry in Small Bore Pistol Multi target.

Class medals were won by Arran F. , a Gold in FSPR50, Keith F, a silver in FSPR50, Hugh D., a Gold in SBTP1, and Rex C, a Bronze in GRSB25P.Some photos of the event are shown below.
